Here is a great way to have your students complete a book review with a small group. The book The Jungle by Upton SInclair offers many challenges to the young reader. By having them work in small groups it will offer them a support system when analyzing their chapters. This activity provokes class discussion, public speaking skills, and group collaboration. Students will create a powerpoint presentation highlighting different areas of a book review for the class. A rubric is also attached to this document. I recommend 7 groups, but of course use as many as you would like. This typically take 3 40 minute class days to complete.
